[JavaOne 2009] Cloud/JUG leaders/JavaFx/Solaris party
By lukas on Jun 03, 2009
After the busy long CommunityOne day there was an official "OpenSolaris and Sun Cloud" party in the Moscone. I didn't attend as there was a sitdown dinner "Pre-JavaOne JUG Social Event" with JUG leaders at Henry's Hunan Restaurant. Wow, we had so delicious food that Doris ordered for us. Full table of different dishes. And the restaurant was full of JUG leaders, NetBeans Dream team members etc.
We stopped in the Thirsty Bear to say hello to our friends from Java FX. It seems that there is a party in this small brewery every night. Even if there isn't party they have their own set of beers. As this party ended at 10 PM and somebody told us that there is another one in ROE bar next door we wanted to move there. There was OpenSolaris party in ROE but they didn't let us in because we were not on the list. RSVP next time .
All the JUG leaders, NetBeans dream team continued to the well-know Irish pub Chieftain on 5th and Howard. Aaron Houston was buying pitchers for the folks. The NetBeans' DreamTeam guys agreed to come to the NetBeans Platform HOL and proctor it. Thanks guys.
That was a long nite. I've met some of the guys from NB DreamTeam that I knew from emails. But now I know even the faces! Wade Chandler, Sven Reimers, Toni Epple. And bunch of other folks that were hidden somewhere for a while - as Tim Boudreau And Brazilians and Dutchs are here
